When and Where we Meet

Please note that in-person guild meetings are currently on hold until further notice due to a fire in the building.

There are 3 regular meeting sessions on Mondays: 9:30 to 12 noon mornings, 2 pm-5 pm afternoons and 6 pm-8:30pm evenings. These sessions are an opportunity to get some of your stitching done, browse through the library collection, socialise with other members and hear updates of information that may be useful. We have a variety of special interest groups and Young Stitchers meetings, details of which can be found on the calendar.

The Guild complies with the ACT Government’s COVID-19 Smart Behaviour guidelines. Click here for the Guild’s COVID-19 policy (revised in 2023).
